Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof 2015 Melbourne Business School

Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof

Geoffrey P Martin

We examine the unique nature of agency problems within publicly traded family firms by investigating the earnings management decision of dominant family owners relative to non-family. To do so, we draw upon literature demonstrating that family owners are loss averse with respect to the family’s socioemotional wealth (SEW), or the affective endowment derived from firm ownership and control. Our theory and findings suggest that potential reputational consequences of earnings management lead family principals to engage in less of this practice relative to non-family firms, and that founder family firms are less likely than non-founder family firms to use earnings ...


The Role Of Coordination Bias In Platform Competition, Hanna Halaburda, Yaron Yehezkel 2015 SelectedWorks

The Role Of Coordination Bias In Platform Competition, Hanna Halaburda, Yaron Yehezkel

Hanna Halaburda

This paper considers platform competition in a two-sided market that includes buyers and sellers. One of the platforms benefits from a favorable coordination bias in the market, in that for this platform it is less costly than for the other platform to convince customers that the two sides will coordinate on joining it. We find that the degree of the coordination bias affects the platform's decision regarding the business model (i.e., whether to subsidize buyers or sellers), the access fees and the size of the platform. A slight increase in the coordination bias may induce the advantaged platform ...

An Inquiry Into The Aviation Management Education Paradigm Shift, Matthew P. Earnhardt Ph.D., Jason M. Newcomer D.B.A., Daryl V. Watkins D.M., James W. Marion Ph.D. 2014 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

An Inquiry Into The Aviation Management Education Paradigm Shift, Matthew P. Earnhardt Ph.D., Jason M. Newcomer D.B.A., Daryl V. Watkins D.M., James W. Marion Ph.D.

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Working adults with four-year degrees from accredited colleges or universities earn, on average, almost three times more than individuals without a degree. This pay gap led Newcomer and his colleagues to study attitudes of aviation and aerospace managers towards education. That study found that managers valued education in new hires, even though they did not deem it critical to their own positions. That finding indicated a potential paradigm shift towards the perceived value of education in the industry.

In the current qualitative, phenomenological research, we interviewed 14 managers from various capacities within the aviation and aerospace industries to determine the ...

Establishing A Benchmark Of Fuel Efficiency For Commercial Airline Operations, Samuel Chandra, Chetan K. Chitgopeker, Ben Crawford, John Dwyer, Yi Gao

Journal of Aviation Technology and Engineering

Fuel efficiency is vital for commercial airlines as fuel is one of the most costly items for airline operations. This study aims to compare fuel efficiencies of selected airlines around the globe and to build a benchmark of fuel efficiency that can be referred to by airlines. By using data on fuel consumption and traffic output collected from various sources including airline annual reports, environmental reports and sustainability reports, this study calculated fuel efficiencies measured by liters of fuel consumed per revenue tonne kilometer (RTK) for the selected airlines in the calendar year 2011 or financial year 2010–2011. Airlines ...


Under The Rust Belt Revealing Innovation In Northeast Ohio, Thomas Bacher 2014 University of Akron

Under The Rust Belt Revealing Innovation In Northeast Ohio, Thomas Bacher

University Press Publications

Many areas of the Midwest faced economic challenges after large manufacturing industries, that once operated with three shifts, cut back or went out of business completely. Northeast Ohio was not immune to this downturn and experienced major declines in its population base and tax revenue streams. How could the area recover? This work looks at the post-manufacturing business climate in Northeast Ohio whose major cities, Cleveland, Akron, and Youngstown, were faced with re-inventing themselves and their industrial bases. Using an interview format, the book details how entrepreneurs saw opportunities to develop services and products in the area. Their stories illuminate ...

Virtual Study Abroad: A Case Study, John Lipinski 2014 Kennesaw State University

Virtual Study Abroad: A Case Study, John Lipinski

Atlantic Marketing Journal

Over 90 percent of US universities sponsor study abroad programs. Students are encouraged to engage in such programs to enhance their educational experience and increase their global awareness in our interconnected world. However, despite these efforts, students who engage in such programs are a rarity. Only 1% of US students pursue a study abroad experience each academic year. In order to address this and make key aspects of the study abroad experience available to a wider range of students, two professors decided to link their classrooms, separated by 5,102 miles, via teleconference and create a virtual study abroad class.

The Relationship Of Hr Professionals' Online Experiences With Perceptions Of Organizational Hiring And Promotion Of Online Graduates, Gundars Egons Kaupins, James Edward Wanek, Malcolm Paulin Coco

Management Faculty Publications and Presentations

Based on a survey of 264 human resources professionals from 10 Society for Human Resource Management chapters in Texas, the authors investigated how human resources professionals accept online degrees compared to degrees based on face-to-face coursework for hiring and promotion purposes. If respondents were satisfied with their own online course experiences, they were most likely to view their organization as treating an online bachelor’s or master’s degree as equivalent to a traditional degree for hiring or promotion purposes. Having had online courses in the past or having completed an online degree had no similar and significant association with ...


The Impact Of Budget Constraints On Flexible Versus Dedicated Technology Choice, Onur BOYABATLI, Tiecheng Leng, L. Beril Toktay 2014 Singapore Management University

The Impact Of Budget Constraints On Flexible Versus Dedicated Technology Choice, Onur Boyabatli, Tiecheng Leng, L. Beril Toktay

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

This paper studies the flexible-versus-dedicated technology choice and capacity investment decisions of a multi-product firm under demand uncertainty in the presence of budget constraints. The firm operates under a capital budget for financing the capacity investment, and an operating budget, which is uncertain in the capacity investment stage, for financing the production. We investigate how the tightening of the capital budget and a lower financial exibility in the production stage (the likelihood of having sufficient operating budget) shape the optimal technology choice. We find that the dominant regime is one where dedicated technology should be adopted for a larger investment ...


Learning During The Transition Period: How Identifying Executives As Designate Ceos Affects Their Learning, Rida Mitri Elias 2014 Western University

Learning During The Transition Period: How Identifying Executives As Designate Ceos Affects Their Learning, Rida Mitri Elias

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

CEO succession is an important event in organizations. Around 80% of succession events are relay successions, where a CEO successor is identified a few years before the actual succession event takes place. The success of relay succession compared to horse race and outside successions has been credited to the learning that an heir apparent acquires during the transition period. However, to my knowledge, none of the CEO succession research examines the learning process of heirs apparent.

This study attempts to fill this gap through empirical qualitative research. Using a combination of learning and sensemaking perspectives, this study builds premises proposing ...


Is It Really All About The Money?: Motivating Employees In The 21st Century, Joshua Randall, Stacy Novotny, Seth Larson 2014 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Is It Really All About The Money?: Motivating Employees In The 21st Century, Joshua Randall, Stacy Novotny, Seth Larson

Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato

Motivation has been defined as an emotion or desire operating on the will and causing it to act. In this respect, ‘motivations provide the motor for behavior,’ and according to Pincus, motivation as a psychological construct has played many roles as paradigms have risen and fallen over the decades (2004). To obtain a better understanding of motivation in the twenty-first century, this paper focuses on what motivation is, the role goals play in motivation, how motivation can be maintained, the impact of technology on motivation, the practical implications of needs-based motivation theories, and the concept of over-motivation.


Exchange Rate, Market Size And Human Capital Nexus Foreign Direct Investment – A Bound Testing Approach For Pakistan, Naveed Iqbal Chaudhry, Mian Saqib Mehmood, Asif Mehmood, Bahaudin G. Mujtaba 2014 SelectedWorks

Exchange Rate, Market Size And Human Capital Nexus Foreign Direct Investment – A Bound Testing Approach For Pakistan, Naveed Iqbal Chaudhry, Mian Saqib Mehmood, Asif Mehmood, Bahaudin G. Mujtaba

Mian Saqib Mehmood

This study investigates the role of exchange rate, market size and human capital for attracting foreign direct investment (FDI). In this regard, time series data on annual basis has been collected for the period 1985–2010 and an Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) and Phillips–Perron (PP) unit root tests are utilized to determine the stationarity of the variables. An autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) bounds testing approach to co-integration was applied as all the variables in the model are first level stationary, e.g. I(1). The empirical findings of this study confirm the long run relationship among the variables. However ...


Multinational Enterprise Parent-Foreign Subsidiary Governance, Bassam Elias Farah 2014 Western University

Multinational Enterprise Parent-Foreign Subsidiary Governance, Bassam Elias Farah

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation investigates how a multinational enterprise’s (MNE) corporate headquarters governs its foreign subsidiaries. It draws on agency theory, prospect theory, and corporate governance literatures to develop a framework that describes select MNE parent-foreign subsidiary governance mechanisms expected to predict foreign subsidiary performance, measured as foreign subsidiary survival and profitability.

To test this framework, I first conducted a pilot Canadian study. It was followed by the main multi-country study. The Canadian study used mixed methods. It analyzed quantitative data, compiled from different sources, and qualitative data, collected through personal interviews with subsidiary managers. The main multi-country study used survival ...
